Reaching Gender Parity by 2030

The most effective boards reflect the demographics and experiences of the communities they serve. That’s why we created Appointed. Although women comprise more than half of the population, they hold less than one-third of civic board seats in our region, and 32% of civic boards have no women at all. Appointed is a non-partisan initiative that identifies opportunities for women to serve on civic boards and commissions. We provide support and training opportunities and are a resource available to connect elected officials to interested board candidates.
